Floral Birthday Wishes

Hi there ,hope that your week has bought you  plenty of  joy and that there was some  time for a little creating .  I have a busy few days ahead with visitors and the usual home duties [ which I must admit to neglecting due to new activity of blog hopping ] And , I have a few cards I need to make for classes and give aways. Any way,  as is my practice,  after I made this first card yesterday I placed it on my desk , where I could  assess   it  for a while . Well,  the more I looked at this card,  the more I thought it needed  just a little more . So I took it back to my work area and did just that!
    I added another two flowers and some little centres to all the flowers . Satisfaction achieved . Now,  I can  put in  an insert  and  bag the card.  Recipe is as follows.           

  Cardstock...White gloss and Whisper White SU
   Stamps...Vintage Vogue, Sincere Salutations, SU
    Inks...    Garden Green, Melon Mambo and Baja Breeze , SU.  
    Accessories...self adhesive black Pearls and Stamp-a-ma-jig, SU
                            I think the added bits definately improved the card. even though it is still quite simple,  clean and crisp . I would love to see what you think.  catch you soon . Shirley-Anne            


  1. Now, If I had seen the first version on it's own I would have said that it was really pretty! but you have made it really gorgeous by adding the extra flowers and the centres Shirley Anne!
    I especially like the fact that the extra two flowers are different colours, I think it works really well!

  2. Both versions are beautiful in my opinion. You did a wonderful job with both. I love how you set it on your desk to "let it sink in" for awhile. Such a good idea! It's funny, but sometimes as I'm looking through my blog for something, I look at past cards and always think "Hmmm, I should have done this or added that". Best, Curt
